    L'Occitane BIG Little Things Recycling Program


    don't waste your second chance

    During the MCO you've probably decluttered or accumulated many wastes but what can you do with them? In my What To Do During MCO post, I have shared that you could go to recycling centers for your recyclables. For clothes, you could donate or recycle them at H&M's fashion recycling program and in return get a 15% discount card for your next single item purchase.

    If you're a beauty enthusiast, then you might want to check out your local beauty stores for their recycling program. One particular program that I am fond of is L'Occitane's Big Little Things recycling program in partnership with I-CYCLE Malaysia, a local solutions provider of waste separation and recycling.

    This is also the first recycling program for L'Occitane and if I'm not mistaken, it started in Malaysia? If that is correct, I really applaud the team for starting this sustainable initiative to help locals understand the importance of now throwing their plastics away and reducing plastic pollution in the world.

    There is hope for plastics after all and also a reward for those who start!

    3. For every qualified empty, you receive a stamp on your e-reward page online. Once you collected the number of stamps needed to redeem a reward, you'll get the item from the store during or at your next visit.
    * An account will be created for you using your phone number. There you can check your stamp collection and recycling journey as well as the rewards.

    Ok, I'm interested! So what kind of empties are considered qualified? Well, you're in luck because the brand accepts any beauty brands! Accepted Packaging.
